That’s LEGO, not LEGOS…

I loved LEGO as a child. My children love LEGO. And it turns out I still love LEGO even if I couldn’t possibly afford some of the amazing sets that they bring out.

What I particularly like those is the imaginative and artistic creations that LEGO builders come up with and I like to showcase them here.

LEGO The Hobbit — The Company

It's been a while since I posted a good #LEGO build for people to enjoy and it's time to correct that with this impres­sive set of char­ac­ters from The Hobbit (Peter Jackson movie versions). The entire of Thorin Oakenshield's company is on display here and the scale used to build them allows for a lot of detail. Pâté-keetongu has … Read More…

LEGO Game Of Thrones — House Stark Sigil

<img class="alignleft size-large wp-image-119831" src="http://www.eoghann.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/14569135781_3316c8b307_o-1024x679.jpg" alt="14569135781_3316c8b307_o" width="600" height="397" data-wp-pid="119831" />It's becoming almost passé to do artistic vari­a­tions on the sigils of the various houses from Game of Thrones. But this one is worth bringing to your atten­tion for a few reasons. First of all it's LEGO and that makes every­thing cooler. But also it's extremely well … Read More…

LEGO Star Wars Cosplay — LEGO Boba Fett

<img class="alignleft size-large wp-image-119822" src="http://www.eoghann.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/photo-5 – 1-768x1024.jpg" alt="photo 5 – 1" width="600" height="800" data-wp-pid="119822" />How about that for a geek triumvi­rate head­line? Yes this is a cosplay of the LEGO Star Wars minifigure of the galaxy's least compe­tent bounty hunter Boba Fett as lovingly created by CGS1 for his son. Even I think it's really cool and I think Boba Fett is the third … Read More…

LEGO Star Wars — Darth Malgus Lands On Hoth

<img class="alignright wp-image-119797" src="http://www.eoghann.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/11985450615_b6f7b23c43_k-1024x681.jpg" alt="11985450615_b6f7b23c43_k" width="700" height="466" data-wp-pid="119797" />Christoffer Östberg or East Moun­tain as he goes by on Flickr produces LEGO imagery that can only be described as beau­tiful. They're also wonder­fully geeky and Star Wars related which is a bonus. It's the atten­tion to detail which puts these photographs over the top though. Sure they're using … Read More…

LEGO Sci-Fi — The Settlement on Epherna 1

<img class="alignright size-large wp-image-119784" src="http://www.eoghann.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Settlement-on-Epherna-1-1024x768.jpg" alt="Settlement on Epherna 1" width="600" height="450" data-wp-pid="119784" />Here's a creative use of the micro-scale building style to present a whole city (and not just any city but a futur­istic space port) in a tiny space. Tim Clark has done some great work with this build giving a real sense of a big, busy city complete with buildings … Read More…

LEGO Princess Bride — The Final Duel

<strong>Inigo Montoya: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die. Count Rugen: Stop saying that! A movie classic skill­fully recre­ated by a group of nine LEGO builders as part of a 14 vignette collab­o­ra­tion depicting scenes from The Princess Bride. This one is called The Final Duel and of course shows us … Read More…

LEGO Superheroes — Green Arrow

<img class="alignleft size-large wp-image-119756" src="http://www.eoghann.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/14378406210_d383d606af_h-768x1024.jpg" alt="14378406210_d383d606af_h" width="600" height="800" data-wp-pid="119756" />Obviously LEGO have been selling a variety of super­hero sets for some time now under license from both DC Comics and Marvel Comics. But this build by Nicolas Picot is some­thing very different and oh so impres­sive. For a start it's about 20 inches in height and if that's … Read More…
